Heroes of the Reformation: Life-Changing Lessons for the Young is a reprint of an 1885 publication by The American Sunday School Union. It hearkens back to the day when children were encouraged to set apart the Sabbath by quiet reading of religious literature rather than rough and rambunctious play on the Lords' Day. It is of historical interest for its layout and many woodcut style illustrations.
This volume includes brief but very informative sketches on the likes of Wycliffe, Huss, Savonarola, Luther, Melancthon, Tyndale, Edward the Sixth, John Fox, Latimer and Ridley, Cranmer, Knox, Zwingli, Calvin, Farel, Alasco, Gustaus Adolphus and several others.
In the words of the author, 'There is nothing more helpful to us, in seeking to serve God, than to try and learn the practical lessons which we find illustrated in the lives of the good and holy men, who have been a blessing to the church and to the world through their faithful labors. The Heroes of the Reformation belong to this class, and these sketches of their noble lives are sent forth in the earnest hope that through God's blessing they may prove useful to the young who are trying to serve him.'
